We've been having a few problems, issues, lack of training, discipline errors, bad habits, unpleasant behavior, from our pooch. One of them being the complete destruction of the arm on our new sofa [4 DAYS AFTER HAVING IT]. Morgan never touched our old sofa, but something about this new one has him in a fuss. More on the sofa drama on a later post.
We decided that Morgan could not have access to our entire condo while we were away at work; we could no longer trust him. We now keep him in our kitchen with a gate and I come home on my lunch breaks to let him out or we keep him on the balcony which has been completely puppy proofed. Morgan prefers to be outside barking at the birds, trees and whatever else may catch his attention.
My parents [Morgan's grandparents] graciously purchased him a new mini-condo for the balcony from Amazon.com.

Another beautiful day in Southern California with temperatures around 78 degrees in Orange County :) I decided to make beef tacos and Spanish rice for dinner. When Mike got home he said he could smell dinner down the street. We set up our new patio furniture [which we purchased from Target with gift cards] and we ate on our balcony...
Because our balcony limits us on space, we knew our patio furniture had to collapse so we could create a hanging system for it. My dad and Michael hung racks for the chairs and table a few weeks ago... they hang perfectly on the side wall of our balcony and are out of our way when we aren't using them. We attempt to keep our place as functional as possible because it isn't huge.

I've been dreaming of the banana leaf mirrors from Crate & Barrel for more than a year... kinda sick, I know. Last week Michael and I went to the Crate & Barrel at the mall near us and found out the store closed down... SAD day! So today we made the trip to South Coast Plaza to pick them up. I'm loving them...
